The concert features the ensemble performing works by Irish composers born in the 1980s, and takes place at the Wexford Arts Centre on 2 April and on 11 April at St Columb’s Hall, Derry as part of the Walled City Music’s Spring Series.
Composers featured include Jonathan Nangle and Benedict Schlepper-Connolly, with world premieres by Barry O’Halpin, Amanda Feery and Emma O’Halloran.
From the Crash Ensemble’s web site:
From the decade that brought you jelly shoes, Pac-man, Mutant Ninja Turtles and E.T we bring you Ireland’s brightest composing talent.
Ever wondered what it would be like to hear work by a young Beethoven or Philip Glass as it happened?
This is classical music from here and now – from Irish composers in their 20’s and early 30’s. Born in the 80’s features works by Jonathan Nangle, Barry O’Halpin, Ben Schlepper-Connolly, Amanda Feery and Emma O’Halloran.
The ensemble will perform as a quintet (violin, cello, double bass, clarinet, electric guitar), and will repeat the programme at the Dock, Leitrim on 4 September, and on 5 November at the Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast in association with Moving on Music.
